Jamming in Paradise (Puerto Rico) - an invitation for musicians and artists to visit Answered

I live in a little piece of paradise, in the forested mountains of Puerto Rico.  Unfortunately, I don't find many musicians near where I live to improvise music with.  Since I have a guest house for visitors, it would be nice to import some musicians to fill it once in a while.  Also artists and other creative people to play with.  

I mostly play tootophone, latabonkers, and a variety of other musical instruments I make.  (Search Instructables for tootophone and latabonkers.)  I lean toward improvisational jazz, but can improvise along with just about anything.  I have some recording capability.  

Let me know if you might be interested.

Hi Rafaelq5,

I don't travel far. I live about 15 km outside of Las Marias in the direction of Lares. Where do you live? Would you be willing to travel that far?

I could email you a map. Thinkenstein@yahoo.com is my address.

I'll have to check them out, but I suspect my situation out here in the jungle is probably too slow speed to get it to work. Youtube videos usually have to pause periodically for buffering. I'm on the cheapest server rate.

I dunno, anyone ever drum back if you are doing the Tarzan thing out in the wild?

Not exactly what I have a guesthouse for. Cyber existing has it's attraction, but I think I'd rather do it the good old fashion way. I've never Skyped. Sounds like I would need a USB camera of some sort. What is involved to Google +

Skype and google+ are essentially video calls you can do using a webcam and the internet to get connected. I think google + hangouts lets you set up a "conference call" with several people at the same time for free. There are a lot of collaborations of musicians by using youtube video mixes. Nothing does beat "Is it live or is it Memorex?"

It doesn't seem to have copy-pasted the link. Go to Wimp.com search for "Can we auto-correct humanity"
